One of the books I’m currently writing is a psychological thriller novel, called “The Lord of the Harvest”. It takes place in Akron, Ohio. In it’s current state, I have been using actual locations, businesses, etc.
I’m wondering if my fellow writers could tell me what you think about this. Is it okay to use actual names of businesses and locations?
The book is fiction, with fictional (but hopefully realistic) characters. It’s about a serial killer and the private detective assisting the APD in finding the killer.
So, what do you think?
